Worship Leaders Training

A training curriculum for worship leaders of Faith Community Church

Faith Community Church (FCC)’s Worship Leaders Training Course is an in-house, immersive training curriculum designed to equip emerging worship leaders for competent ministry in a church service setting and to supplement the on-going learning of experienced worship leaders.

Taking its cue from FCC’s spiritual formation track, the Course aims to:

  • Connect worship leaders from various zones and of different levels of experience in the environment of a learning (and worshipping) community
  • Equip worship leaders with both practical skills and theoretical knowledge in the art of worship leadership
  • Mentor worship leaders through shared wisdom and experiences to impart and ignite a passion for God’s presence as expressed through worship
  • Release worship leaders for effective ministry across FCC zones and services and beyond, including city-wide and international events towards FCC’s vision of global impact and influence.
